    :confused: Titanium nobs? :confused:

    ok they look cool, but the weight thing, hmm, it is like worrying about the calories of a sprinkle on a banana split.

    I think passenger's seats weigh to much, so there are big gains there (also no passengers wanting free Ferrari rides, a double bonus) :D

    Can you make TI shift paddles for the F1's?

    How about annodizing those bad boys? that would look sick.

    I'm sorry.

    You wanted grams or ounces.

    OK

    1lb = 16oz
    18.75lbsX16=300 ounces

    So my answer is "300oz"

    Sorry for the off-topic. My knob is peeling. What do you use to strip-it and what to use to seal it.

    ljsaia,

    The stock 355 knobs have a common problem with the clear coat peeling off. It may be possible to strip it off, re polish and clear coat it.

    We make an Aluminium knob for the 355 that it available in a polished or chrome plated finish for less than £30.00. Feel free to PM me if you need any more info.

    Thanks


    Paul
